October 4th, 2011
WOONSOCKET, R.I. – MinuteClinic has opened its first retail health clinic locations in the Savannah, Ga., region.
The CVS Caremark Corp. subsidiary said Tuesday that two new clinics are now open inside CVS/pharmacy stores in Savannah and Richmond Hill, Ga. They join 31 other MinuteClinic locations in the state, which are situated throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.
"Since opening our first store-based clinic in Georgia in 2007, we have helped to expand access to high-quality, convenient and affordable care to thousands of residents who have visited us at convenient CVS/pharmacy locations near where they live and work," stated MinuteClinic president Andrew Sussman, who's also senior vice president/associate chief medical officer at CVS Caremark. "We are committed to making our innovative model of care part of Georgia's efforts to broaden access to quality health services."
CVS Caremark noted that the Savannah clinics are part of MinuteClinic's plans to open 100 new clinics nationwide this year and in each of the next four years, for a total of 500 new clinics. As part of the expansion, MinuteClinic launched clinics in Charleston, S.C., last month.
Currently, MinuteClinic has more than 600 locations in 26 states and the District of Columbia.
